Window display

Helloooo,
Can't believe it's November. I haven't completely given up crochet, just posting. Over the summer I was busy gardening and being outside so I didn't spend much time with my yarn. Plus something changed with the blogger and I was having some trouble posting. So long story short, it's November.

This fall I was looking for some old lumber in a shed at my grandparents yard and came across a few old window frames, some with glass, others without. I have a stash of hats that I didn't want to keep stored in boxes, so I made this, a hat display from an old window.


I sanded it down, painted it white, sanded it again and then added the pegs. I put wire on the back to hang it on the wall. I think it's perfect for what I needed and fits on a wall in my craft room.

These boots were made for walking ....

I've had this pattern for a long time, probably since shortly after I learned how to crochet. In my quest to learn more than just how to crochet in a straight line, I must of felt like challenging myself. I made a few pair and then set them aside. This fall I was asked to make them again, so I did. Every time I make them, they look a bit different, even though I do follow the pattern. What's great about these boots, is that you can really do anything. Once the main part of the boot is made, you can add stars, fringe, it's limitless. Plus any color combination works. I found some great help and tips from this girl, orangesnooze, on ravelry.


I also found a great pattern for this bandana. It was actually for a bib, with one side crochet and one side material. I opted to just make the crochet side and added the star. The back has a button closure. I'll post the link when I can find the pattern, I'm painting my craft room and can't find much right now.

It's March!!

Well, it's been awhile since I've taken the time to write. My husband and I were away for 12 days in February. We went on vacation to Hawaii with my in-laws. It was beautiful, relaxing and strange not having the children with us. They had a great time with my parents and other family and friends while we were away. I was definitely ready to be home at the end though.


While we were away, I did zero crocheting, lots of reading (2 books), lots of beach time, sight seeing and eating.


Now that I'm back in the real world, I'm trying to get organized. We homeschool our children so March can be kind of a blah month, looking forward to the end but knowing we have lots of work to finish. So we persevere.


I'm also trying to get some hats done to sell at a local shop. I've gotten a few done and I've wanted to try a few new patterns too.

These are two new ones I've made this month. I'll post more as I get time.

Just for the Momma's.

I love trying new projects. Before Christmas I found this Headband pattern at Crochet Creative Creations. Great site with lots of free patterns. I made one for mysis-in-law for Christmas. Of course I forgot to take a picture so I finally finished another one.


This headband was super easy to make and the dirsections are easy to follow. It would also be easy to adjust the size to fit a smaller or larger head.

Now I'm off to make some more!!

Another photo shoot

My niece was born September 1st, almost 6 weeks early. She weighed 4 lbs 9 oz.


After spending 12 days in the NICU, she got to come home.


She was the star of a photo shoot that my friend Coralie, at Coralie's photography, did.

She sure is a cutie and Coralie did an awesome job. Thanks girls.
